Those aren't examples of you saying LITERALLY exactly the same thing at the time.

    Whereas to use your mask example, while you were telling everyone about your friends who'd rather die than take any precautions folks here were discussing how the CDC's recommendations on masks at the time were wrong.

    There's a German word 'Bildungsphilister' or dogma-prone newspaper reader that defines why you receive so much push back. MontuckyFried = Bildungsphilister, a person who takes politics literally and science metaphorically rather than the reverse, for example.
    I want you to consider his rant: He believes his word deserves as much legitimacy in this thread as trusted experts like Fauci because he one time said something sort of similar (but not really). He also has a persecution complex where people, who aren't routinely mentioned in this thread (like Harris and Pelosi) might be given too much tolerance respective to him, because they once said something similar (but also not really). Further, he is oblivious to his own limited capacity on the topic and track record of 1) spreading misinformation 2) forming incoherent arguments 3) bad faith proposition. Completely weak dick and narcissistic; people who bring quality info or talking points don't have to whine and complain about being dismissed (oh it's so unfair - woe is me) - their value is apparent.

    More funny memes for the simple brained







    School teacher. How many kids did she pass this on to? How many surgeries did she delay while taking up hospital resources?

    i live in an anti-vax hotspot, which has had a rough go lately. however, a few years ago there was a measles scare at one of the local low-vax schools. that school had a recorded vax rate in the 20-30% when the outbreak occurred. all non-vaxed children had to quarantine at home. so day 1, the school was nearly empty, but on days 2 and 3 of that quarantine, it was back to ~75% full because many parents were faux anti-vax (to fit in with the school culture) and actually had fully vaxed children. i wish i had the actual numbers, but it was fascinated to observe one step removed.

    i'm still encountering people that are not vaxing for covid because of fear. had a fun argument/discussion on IG with one earlier this week. that person may even be a mag or lurker.

    Local ski area announced that they are requiring their employees to be vaccinated. I made the mistake of reading a few comments now I'm embarrassed to be a member of the human race.

    Repetitive, unfruitful debate is the opposite of pragmatic.

    Is it fear or more likely ignorance? Or maybe a lot of both.

    Iíd give this post of yours a 3/10. Iíve seen you do better.

    At least youíre on point with calling their ideas idiotic. Perhaps you could explain that to others here who feel ďall opinions are validĒ and to think otherwise is just being part of a cult.

    Where do you find all these not funny memes you think are funny? Itís bizarre. Do you
    find them on the information superhighway?

    You keep misusing words, because pretending that all we need to be is polite and offer carrots is not pragmatic at this point in the pandemic.

    but with the US this happens a lot because of bithsiderism. People think the opposite of Alex Jones or Hannity is “leftie” when it’s Goop.

    Put numbers to it. How many people are going to get a vaccine because of a mandate and how soon will they get it? How many of those would have gotten the vaccine without the mandate and how many of those who aren't subject to a mandate will decide not to get one who were otherwise on the fence?

    Can there be a broader version than what's already been done?

    Vaccine appointments jump up when mandates are put in place. These appointments are by being filled by people who could have gotten the vaccine earlier. No Iím not gonna post any links. If you are here you have the same google access I do. Feel free to discount this post if the lack of links discredits it for you.

    How would you answer this question. I have been wasting time in a battle of wits all morning with 3 anti vaxxers


    DougW if everything the government is saying and it is deadly as it's made out to be answer me this question. Why has the homeless population not been wiped out? I know there's not many in Golden but in Vernon we have over 250 identified homeless people living in the streets. I live in downtown Vernon and I walk and talk to the homeless people on a regular basis. They do not wear a mask they do not social distance if they get sick they are not able to self isolate. They share needles drugs pipes and live in camps of up to 15 people. So if just one homeless person in Vernon got covid it should affect there whole community yet it is not �� How is this possible???

    answer so far Are you trying to be obtuse ? Its not a great mystery, your sample size is 250 of various ages so with the death rate for covid-19 applied its entirely likely that you would have no deaths in that population. How would even tell if they were sick?

    running out of patience, ...

    I don't offend easily, but I'm pretty fucking offended by these shitforbrains equating public health measures that amount to little more than an inconvenience, and are literally intended to save lives, to the Holocaust and Nazi Germany.

    Setting aside their complete ignorance of history, the self-entitled tone-deafness, and victim complexes that ostensibly elevates them to a persecuted class is disgusting.
